And yes I was seeing your URL:

$ipcam_url = "http://extcam-22.se.axis.com/jpg/1/image.jpg";

before opening the input port on the server side.

I can assure you that it's "Outbound" ports from the servers perspective. Not "Inbound" ports. The request to grab a image from the IP Camera, from the server. Is a "Outbound" request from the server. Not a "Inbound" request from the server.

Additionally, No need to do anything with IPTABLES is required with a normal install of Linux. So, your issue was being caused by a file security problem. Which by following the instructions in the ___ReadThisFirst.txt file would have resolved your issue alone. Without doing anything else.

Yes, changing the security to write/read for ipcam1.jpg was going to be my next suggestion.

I had just assumed that you followed the instructions in the ___ReadThisFirst.txt file. Which stated that must be done.

Had you read the ___ReadThisFirst.txt file carefully. You would have seen the instruction to secure ipcam1.jpg for write/read file access which would have resolved your problem. By itself.

For Amcrest IP Cameras the URL should not be:

Code: Select all

$ipcam_url = "http://www.ste-agathe.com/cam-1.jpg";

But should be this:

Code: Select all

$ipcam_url = "http://User:[email protected]:PortForCamera/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi";

Hi Don,

I made a test and removed the iptables rules and it stopped working. Put the rules back on and it started working again. Looks like my firewall is stricter than usual. Slackware.

Thanks again.

Video advertising of the camera can be a good way to produce website traffic. Video advertising is basically free and can be a very powerful tactic in getting targeted traffic back to your website, as well as in another face of the marketing process like building relations and branding yourself. Many people are demoralized by video advertising because they are not sure exactly how to do it. It is really simple and when done correctly, this technique can produce website traffic in large quantity.

if you create an account on instagram and have a desire to boost it up, for example, you may use https://zen-promo.com/free_instagram_followers for winding up the amount of followers as I did with my blog. I couldn't get the needed amount of followers for a long time as I didn't have extra money for buying the bloggers' ads, so this service really helped me
